Whenuakite 2019 aerial 1080 operation - approval from iwi

Wendy Pond made this Official Information request to Department of Conservation

Response to this request is delayed. By law, Department of Conservation should normally have responded promptly and by (details and exceptions)

From: Wendy Pond

Dear Department of Conservation,

I have received a copy of the form submitted by Department of Conservation DOC Hauraki (Thames office) to Waikato District Health Board seeking permission for the Whenuakite 2019 aerial 1080 operation. I have also received the communication logs for this application.

1. The application from DoC lists some iwi as being consulted. Please clarify: Which Maori groups gave their consent and approval for the aerial 1080 operation to poison the Whenuakite Public Conservation forest in 2019?

2. Please provide all documentation confirming the consent of these groups to the aerial 1080 operation to poison the Whenuakite forest in 2019. Please do not redact the name of the person who signed a statement of consent, as I wish to confirm that the approval came from an acknowledged kaumatua or kuia.

3. Which Maori group did DoC recognise as the tangata whenua of the Whenuakite Public Conservation land for the purpose of the 2019 poisoning operation?

4. Which tangata whenua were included in the planning and design phase of the operation prior to DoC lodging the operation plan? Please provide evidence of their participation.

Yours faithfully,

Wendy Pond
